I can’t remember when I met your mom, perhaps it was when she taught my daughter At Sunday school over forty years ago. Over the years I would see her around town and we would have a brief conversation. I do remember how wonderfully your parents danced; so light on their feet. I am sorry to have read about her passing. Brenda Goldstein

I first knew Naomi as a "Mom" of Barbara and then as one of my first "mentor teachers" in my early days of teaching. We were both at the JCC Nursery School during my early days of career as a Nursery School teacher and her final days as an early childhood educator. Naomi taught the "twos" & I the "fours". She was an inspiration, wonderful role model for a new teacher and a fun colleague. I have always used her "clean up song" in my years of teaching. During our days together as teachers if she heard me singing that song, she would jokingly say "your singing my song again"!. That song & Naomi have been a part of my teaching life for 30 years. Much love to the family at the loss of this wonderful Mama, teacher, friend, dancer, delightful lady. Thank you Naomi for everything you gave to me and all that knew you.

Naomi along with her husband Gene were best friends with my parents Olga and Leon Grilli for almost 50 years. My mom would talk to Naomi almost every day. The Grilli family will miss Naomi and hopefully they along with my parents will be dancing together in heaven, and Gene and Leon will also be playing golf. Our condolences to her children Zvi, Barbara and David, and the late Kathy, and her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Naomi and Gene were great supporters of Temple Beth El and Israel. Our mom Olga was so lucky to have such a great friend as Naomi. May Naomi rest in peace.

The Grill children - Ann, Richard and Barbara and their spouses

Although I only knew Naomi for a few short years it seemed so much longer. I will miss our conversations. One of our last ones was regarding a book she lent me and my fondest memory was watching her videos with her of her ballroom dancing days.
My condolences to your family.
